As many of you know, social media was abuzz last week with National Running Day. Many of us were logging miles, shouting out our splits on Instagram, joining friends and family for some fun miles at the park, while some of us headed out for the first time in a while to get the running mojo flowing again.

I was fortunate enough to partner with Brooks for the launch of their #thankyourunning campaign and as part of it shared one of the many reasons I am thankful for what running brings to me on a regular basis. The idea behind the activation was pretty simple (and brilliant) – share a moment where you would like to thank running and Brooks might reply with something pretty special.

See below for some great samples:

To continue this great campaign and give us MORE reasons to say #thankyourunning, I have partnered with Brooks again to host a giveaway and help announce some of the items from their NEW apparel line launching in July 2015.

The New Collection

Brooks has been hard at work to kick off their new apparel line for 2015.

See what they’ve developed:

  • Brooks Running is launching a completely brand new apparel line. This new collection is steeped in runner insight and built from the ground up to meet runners needs both on and off the run. It takes design inspiration from the simplicity, minimalism, and functionality found in Scandinavian culture, yielding timeless pieces that provide ultimate functionality and a clean aesthetic.
  • Mixing art with science, the apparel line utilizes the company’s new proprietary DriLayer family of high performance fabrics to keep runners at their best in all conditions.
  • The smartest running gear starts with intelligent ingredients. Optimized to keep runners dry and happy, the brand’s family of wicking fabrics are engineered exclusively for them – and each version is handpicked to make sure all of their gear performs its very best so you can return the favor.
  • Running or resting, Brooks footwear and apparel are a great fit for your workout and everything else you’ve got on your schedule. Just switch out a few pieces and you’ll be ready for drinks with friends, running errands, or just hanging out.

And in taking #thankyourunning a step further, we’re hosting a giveaway from the new collection from Brooks set to debut this July.
